This healthy brownie is great for when you are craving something sweet and need an afternoon pick-me-up snack, but you don’t want to ruin your dinner. It’s also the perfect pre-workout meal because of the balance of macronutrients in a serving. The ingredients in this recipe provide healthy fats and just enough complex carbs to sustain and power you through a challenging workout.
There is nothing worse than going to the gym and not being able to give your personal best because you didn’t get in the proper nutrition. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my workouts to suffer because I drop the ball by not eating properly. Whether you want to eat something for fuel or for fun, this satisfies both desires.
Here’s the ingredients you need:
1/2 cup of old fashioned rolled oats
1 scoop of protein
1/2 TBS cocoa powder *omit if using chocolate flavored protein powder
pinch baking powder
pinch of sea salt
1/2 banana (mashed)
1/2 cup of chocolate milk (regular milk is fine)
1/2 tsp caramel extract *optional
1 TBS dark chocolate morsels
Put batter in a small pan sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 min.
*optional idea to get in healthy fats; spread a tsp of peanut butter on top
Enjoy this delicious afternoon treat with a cup of herbal tea.😊
